Tinctoria Designs was created by Samantha Backer and Jill Golden in the Spring of 2003 stemming from a love for natural (plant) dyes, textile arts, great fitting clothing, and an organic lifestyle. 

All of Tinctoria’s garments are our original designs and are intentionally manufactured in the city where we thrive, Portland, Oregon. We use only organic fabric blends including hemp, bamboo, and organic cotton and we hand dye exclusively with plant and insect dye.  Each Tinctoria garment is first sewn in it’s undyed natural state and is then hand dyed in our Portland, Oregon studio using material extracted from trees, roots, plants, and insects.
